Standards and Growth in the Music Room

Standards-based, assessment, measuring growth, data! What do these all mean in the music room? In Day 1 of this course we will use music-specific examples to understand standards-based curriculum, assessment, and grading. We will discuss the significance of standards, focused assessment objectives, rubrics, feedback, student reflection, and higher-level thinking in music classes. Work time is allocated (with peer and instructor support) to apply what you’re learning by revising one assessment of musical performance and one assessment music knowledge you currently use in your classroom. In Day 2 we will build on our assessment work to understand how to use it to measure student growth. Together we will study a basic data cycle, then practice various steps in the cycle as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) using case studies from music classrooms. Work time is allocated, again, to apply what you’re learning by creating a plan for measuring one aspect of student growth in your own classroom.
